French term or phrase: Perspective côtée et élévation côtée
Plan of an exhibitor's booth for a trade show.
Pascal
lateral perspective & lateral elevation
Explanation:
These are architectural terms referring to the side view of the booth in perspective and the flat schematic side view (the drawings would, of course, include the measurements). Another oft-used word for elevation is "profile".

Thanks for your help. It's probably the closest translation, however, I think the word "cotee" means "including measurements". Is it ok to say "quoted lateral perspective and quoted lateral elevation"? You can email back at pascalparra@hotmail.com if you have an opinion on this. Cheers,

measured perspective and elevation


Explanation:
In addition to the answer on lateral perspective/elevation, if it possible that there is no circumflex accent on the "o" in "cotée", then might it not be referring to dimensions?

coter = mark the dimensions
cote = dimension
cotation = dimensioning

There you go!


Explanation:
By the time I had written out my answer and sent it off, you had selected your answer. Accents are important aren't they!

In yacht construction and sailmaking (two of my fields), the verb "coter" comes up all the time, particularly in the past participle, "coté" as when referring to the taking of measurements, the phrase "prendre des cotes" is used.

Take a look at the GDT


Explanation:
The Grand Dictionnaire is rather eloquent on this one. I came to know about the GDT through this site.

Here's "cote" (dessin technique)

dessin technique 1 / 2



dimension cote n. f.

Déf. :Représentation graphique sur un dessin montrant à quels éléments se rapporte une dimension, et spécifiant sa valeur et l'unité utilisée si celle-ci est différente de l'unité choisie pour l'ensemble du dessin.
Note :((Titre de la source citée :)) Dessins techniques. Cotation et tolérancement.Le terme « cote » est couramment utilisé pour indiquer uniquement la valeur de la dimension.

dessin technique 2 / 2



dimensionSyn.size dimension n. f.Syn.cote n. f.

Déf. :Nombre exprimant dans l'unité choisie la valeur numérique d'une longueur.
